Why Gendered Pronouns Are Dumb And Stupid And We Should Kill Them


Okay, a bit more on why I’m so down on gendered pronouns!



(Source is this weird make-your-own-bingo site. I don’t know how you would play this game.)

Pronouns are words like he, she, them, it, etc. They’re words that take the place of people, so we can say…

Stop copying.




from Kati: “This piece has a lot of meaning for me. I provide it to charities like A Home for Greys that ask for auction donations. I donate part of the proceeds to Girls Rock Philly while…

"ESPECIALLY if you’re one of those people whose first response is “oh that’s so simple, anyone could make it who cares” If that’s the case why aren’t these designers and the companies that employ them making their own? It’s because 80% is the idea, knowing what words, what images, what ideas people like, and here on tumblr it’s REALLY easy to see what people like, it’s absolutely quantified in the notes attached to something. It’s a clear sign to a lazy designer or piece of shit company that something is a sure win, were it to become a tshirt."

I see the above stated attitude way too much in conversations about plagiarism, wherein some uneducated defender of people’s right to steal goes off about how the original work “wasn’t even that creative in the first place”. THAT IS BULLSHIT, and I’m glad that Jeanne was able to articulately state why, and really, only someone who is not an artist or creator themselves would carry that attitude anyway. Saying that an image is simple and obvious is not an excuse for someone else to just take it, and it’s actually an insult to the artist who made it: the best art looks effortless, that doesn’t mean that it is.

Credit work. Don’t steal. That should be the simple part.

Big props to everybody who helped make this bad boy. And also to all my friends at Late Night Work Club!




How To Format A Comic Book Script
"Notes as follows:
1) A page header with the book title, number and writer’s name.
2) Each new script page should begin on a new document page. And you can’t miss the page number when it’s big and bold. Often, I have to skim through a script to look for a note or direction. Big page numbers help tremendously.
3) Panel numbers almost as bold and clear as the page number.
4) Panel descriptions for the most part don’t have to be that lengthy unless it’s really necessary. The actions of characters should be here, (not in the lettering area; see #6) set direction, and notes to the other members of the creative team if necessary.
5) Also, the digital age has given us the greatest source of reference that comic creators have ever had access to. Links to reference photos should also be included in the panel description.
6) Under each panel description is the lettering area. Everything that needs to be lettered goes here.
7) Each item in the lettering area should be numbered. If the editor is doing lettering placements, these numbers correspond to the placements sent to the letterer.
8) The call-out of each lettering item and any descriptors like these:
CHARACTER (OFF), meaning the character is speaking from off-panel.
CHARACTER (WHISPER), self-explanatory.
CHARACTER (BURST), meaning the dialogue is shouted and should be in a burst balloon.
CHARACTER (WEAK), character’s dialogue should be diminished.
CHARACTER (SINGING), self-explanatory. Usually accompanied by music notes.
9) Like dialogue, captions have their own descriptors:
NARRATION or CAPTION (CHARACTER), self-explanatory. The inner thoughts of a character.
CAPTION (TIME/PLACE), such as, “New York, 2013.”
CAPTION (VOICE OVER), meaning the character is speaking, but is not in the location shown in the current panel.
10) SFX, self-explanatory, “sound effect”.
11) Dialogue should be indented, NOT tabbed over. If you use tabs, the letterer has to run find/replace searches on the document to delete them all before lettering. (To use indents in MS Word, go: Format / Paragraph / Indents & Spacing.) Dialogue should also be written in plain sentence case, not CAPS.
12) Dialogue that should be bold in the comic, should be bold and/or underlined in the script. If you use caps for bold dialogue, the letterer will have to convert it to sentence case before lettering.
13) Non-English dialogue should be italic. Whole blocks of dialogue that are translated into English, should begin with a , and are usually accompanied by a caption explaining what language is being spoken.”
- Nate Piekos

Very cool.

This is in fact the format I use, and one that I know is being passed around by writers both professional and aspiring. It’s an excellent, intuitive format.
